Book 8: Shopaholic to the stars
GOODREADS SYNOPSIS: Sophie Kinsella returns to her beloved Shopaholic series with Becky Brandon (née Bloomwood) newly arrived in Hollywood and starry-eyed. She and her two-year-old daughter, Minnie, have relocated to L.A. to join Becky’s husband, Luke, who is there to handle PR for famous actress Sage Seymour. Becky can’t wait to start living the A-list lifestyle, complete with celebrity sightings, yoga retreats, and shopping trips to Rodeo Drive. But she really hopes to become a personal stylist—Sage’s personal stylist—if only Luke would set up an introduction. Then, unexpectedly, Becky is offered the chance to dress Sage’s archrival, and though things become a bit more complicated, it’s a dream come true!
Red carpet premieres, velvet ropes, paparazzi clamoring for attention—suddenly Becky has everything she’s ever wanted.
Or does she?
Well Becky Brandon (nee Bloomwood) is starting to annoy me slightly.
She is a very selfish character who only thinks about herself, even when she can clearly see that her friends and family need her, she focus’s solely on what will make her happy only.
Just because you move to Hollywood (only for 3 months), it doesn’t mean you have to become a Hollywood A-Lister and become famous. But it does mean that for Becky and she will stop at nothing until she gets her way-even if that means losing her husband and her best friend.
News flash Becky- the world doesn’t revolve around you, get your priorities straight!
In a way I’m kinda glad I only have one book left to read now, until Sophie Kinsella writes the next instalment to the series that is, because I’ve had more than enough of this series for a while.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great series to read, but maybe not one after each other.
